to destroy the country to destroy obama. whereas to succeed in a country he live f.w. de klerk was wi to see it transformed to black rule so it could be done successfully so he could have his country have a better future. reverend, i owe it to you. i think that is the key statement about what happened yesterday, the loss of mandela and what his history is about and the key statement of why this has been so poisonous the last five years. we have real people in this country with real power and status who have used that status of power to hurt the country so they could hurt the president. that's the most damming assessment i've heard and i think the truest. >> an important assessment. chris matthews, thank you. as always. you can see chris's full interview with president obama inch a reairing of "hardball" and of course catch him every day at 7:00 eastern. thank you to nick chrisoff of the "times" and reverend sharpton with the best takeaway of the last 24 hours. >> thank you. >> you can catch him every night at 6:00 p.m. eastern. coming up we'll look at nelson mandela's historic visit to the u

to the most voted on submissions from young people all across the country. so i think president obama is very committed to starting a conversation that will hopefully get our generation educated on the details which are critical about this law. >> you know, jake, before -- you know we don't get into poll numbers about disapproval rates of obama care among younger people. where do you sense this cynicism, this disinterest in anything that government can do or might be able to do for young people comes from? what's the root of it right now? >> i think we don't put too much stock into one poll or another but generally speaking the climate has been very partisan and with the website issues. it feels like the air is clearing more now and generally speaking one thing that we do know from polls is young people aren't educated about this law. it's our position that if we start a conversation and young people learn more what this law means for us and our generation we can have a meaningful conversation about the law that will get our generation engaged and people will be able to make the decision one

's speaking to folks across the country especially in the wake of the whole meltdown of the obama care website. this gives him more of a positive message to give to democrats, and to a working class people certainly who have been suffering on the losing end of a rising income and equality. >> you pointed out, susan, that this is not unique to his campaign either for barack obama or period. it's been used before this income inequality theme. john edward his the two americas. most recently here in new york bill de blasio's two cities theme, and in one case it worked and in another case it didn't if you talk about being elected. maybe that message can work on a local level and not too effective nationally? >> the nation is divided on whether these proposals on whether the government can make things better or whether you need to rely on the private sector and democrats have a firm view that, yes, that's one of the roles of the government including the federal government and the the republicans would disagree and that's one reason why higher minimum wage, and stricter investment and early childhood

. the youth of this response. this is an incredibly young country where the majority of people have no memory of apartheid. it is something from the history books. it is something that they learn about in school or from their parents, perhaps. but president obama put it incredibly well in that statement earlier. and he used one of nelson mandela's best known phrases when he said i fought against white domination and black domination to say this is not someone who was fighting just against the apartheid regime, but against racism right across the races. he said when he came to power as president in 1994 that he didn't want to push the white man into the sea. and perhaps in part for that reason, that is why he is so adored by people of all races. yes, an icon for black africans, an icon, too, in a different way perhaps for millions of white south africans too. although there is a great deal of criticism the way they've progressed, it is peaceful, it is democratic, and it is stable. and no one in 1994 predicted that. >> all right. well, we're going to have a lot more. thank you, rohit. and we're

benefits. what is it that the republicans have against the down trodden in this country? those folks who are trying to recycle back into the economy? on saturday, president obama called out republicans for targeting americans in need. >> it shouldn't be a partisan issue. for decades, congress has voted to offer relief to job seekers. including when the unemployment rate was lower than it is today. but now that economic lifeline is in jeopardy. all because republicans in this congress, which is on track to be be the most unproddive in history, have so far refused to extend it. >> well, i have to give credit to the republicans here. they have the country responding to and talking about the three things i've just pointed out when we have had 40, what, 5, 6 months of private sector oh job growth. when we have added 7 million jobs since president obama inherited the great recession. now that we've got unemployment down, according to the bureau of labor statistics, 7%, arguably, still in double digits. and they've got us believing that we're just not doing -- well, actually, we're doing too mu

by winnie he walked out of there but changed the country from rancor and hostility and said no we're going to reconcile. this became a viable winning tactic in the life of someone like barack obama that i think never left him and i would say helped to lead him towards the kind of change and hope dynamic that he helped to make central in his own political career. so i don't think it's a leap to say the impact that the spirit of mandela and that movement had on our own president. >> katty kay? >> i just want to ask rick something about the international concerns about mandela when he came out of prison because as you point out he was committed to arms struggle in south africa. he refused to give up the arms struggle as a negotiating tactic to get him out of prison. i was in cape town the day he walked out of prison and we didn't know what nelson mandela was going to be like. was he going to be the marxist that went into pry son, was he going to have this reconciliation. in the context of the cold war, rick, the uncertainty surrounding what south africa would become was palpable. >> yes. nobo
